M. CHAPOUTIER - Domaine DE BILA-HAUT Cotes du Roussillon Villages "V.I.T" 2008
Wine Region: South - France Grape: Grenache, Syrah
Tasting notes: The nose is open, expressive and complex with aromas of very ripe black fruits (elderberry, blackberry), some spicy scents (pepper, Garrigue). Great attack on the palate, tight but silky tannins. One notices a dominance of spicy scents, a lot of richness, a good length and a very ethereal final.
